CARLSBAD, Calif., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 1,500 scientists, engineers, consultants, and foreign company representatives are attending the International Insitu Bioremediation Conference in San Diego, where U.S. Microbics, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BUGS - news), is introducing its patented Bio-Raptor(TM) for contaminated soil cleanup, animal waste processing and green waste decomposition applications.

The Bio-Raptor(TM) is portable, street legal, and utilizes proprietary microbial blends with a patented application process to quickly and inexpensively decontaminate soil, decompose green waste, and remove odors, pathogen, and weed seeds from animal effluent.

The Bio-Raptor(TM) a shredder, conveyor, sprayer system is used to particalize soil into small chunks that can easily be sprayed with water containing activated microbial blends. After the contaminated soil passes through the Bio-Raptor(TM) system it is stacked onsite while the microbes break down the hydrocarbon chains into carbon dioxide, water, and other innocuous substances. In many cases, the concentration of the offending contaminates can be reduced to non-detectable levels or levels that meet governmental standards for a non-contaminated classification. Typical contaminants include: diesel fuel, gasoline, oil derivatives, pesticides and sludges, and animal waste streams from horse, cattle, and chicken sources.

The standard Bio-Raptor(TM) has a peak throughput capacity of 600 tons per hour and is ideally suited for portable insitu applications as well as centrally located operations such as a soil or waste-recycling center. The machine is also used worldwide in rock quarries and construction sites for soil screening applications, recycling, and aggregate sizing. Companies with machines similar to the Bio-Raptor(TM) can have their existing equipment retrofitted with the proprietary Microbial Application System to utilize the microbial blends required for bioremediation and waste processing.

''The International Insitu Bioremediation Conference is an excellent opportunity to introduce the Bio-Raptor(TM) and its applications as a high throughput, cost-effective solution for widespread soil contamination and waste problems plaguing our planet,'' said Robert Brehm, BUGS' president and CEO. Brehm indicated that he expected interest from many scientists around the world who wanted to use the Bio-Raptor(TM) for cost-effective, real world applications scaled up from their laboratory experiments. ''Here, at last, is a machine-microbe solution that solves the application problem of providing large surface area (small particle size), proper aeration, and water and microbe application all in a mobile package!'' To further the use of the Bio-Raptor(TM) on a world wide basis, BUGS is offering international licenses and Distributorships for selected applications in selected territories.
